Harry Potter Fans — 3D Print This Hogwarts House Pendant

Which House would you be in? For most Potter fans, it would be a resounding Gryffindor, with us all dreaming of going to a land of magic spells, excitement, and hanging out with the wonderful and sometimes wicked wizards who definitely feel like our own friends–and foes.

960x125_28804_1428861468After devouring seven thick, delicious volumes and seeing every movie, Harry Potter stays with you for good. For some of you though, perhaps Gryffindor is a bit too mainstream, so go all Slytherin on us if you choose, or Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff if they suit your fancy or personality.

One of these pendants should look pretty hip, adorning your neck as you head out for a night of imbibing some sweet butterbeer and bowing to the genius of J.K. Rowling. Borne out of frustration by a dedicated Potter fan who could not find a proper ‘House’ pendant to her liking, Romanian maker and architecture student Teo Hoble took matters into her own hands. The result is a stunning selection of 3D printed Harry Potter Hogwarts House Crest pendants.

Teo Hoble designed the pendants in Rhino and then sent them off to Shapeways, where they were 3D printed in bronze infused stainless steel, in small and large sizes at 5.3 cm tall and 7.6 cm tall, respectively. Using a ribbon is a great idea, adding a classic touch. Shapeways does not include the ribbon, but you can easily find an inexpensive one to your liking, most anywhere.

Slytherin House Crest – Pendant SMALL

The 3D printed Potter pendants are available from the Absolute Geekery Shapeways shop in the following finishes:

  • Sterling silver
  • Bronze
  • Brass
  • Several different types of plating

The smaller pendants retail on Shapeways for $46, while the larger sizes range from $85-88. This was a new designing experience for Hoble, who is a student at Ion Mincu University in Bucharest. Studying architecture, she also loves to draw and paint and does so in her spare time. Using 3D design and creating fandom in Rhino was a new experience, but extremely positive—and it sounds like it was a bit addicting for our Hogwarts designer. After working on this project, Hoble became so enamored of the digital design process that she’s still busy going to town with it, working on numerous other fandom pieces and designs currently.

“Here I am, trying to create the pieces I want, the way I want them. Every piece in the shop is something I’d wear,” says Hoble. “Most of them are simple, but they were carefully planned and designed by someone who identifies as a fellow fan.”

While Harry Potter and his friends are forever cemented in time, offering delectable stories for avid readers and fans all over the world, there are still many generations to come who will be reading along and also going through the exciting moments where they eagerly await to hear about the Sorting into Houses. Here in the real (Muggle) world though, you can pick for yourself with no hocus pocus. The fictional world of Harry Potter may be hard to top, but Hoble’s pendants offer a memento to hold onto long after you’ve read the last page.

While the jewelry is quite beautiful, it’s also a striking way to show off your personality. Which would you choose? Tell us about it in the 3D Printed Hogwarts House Pendants forum thread over at 3DPB.com.
